Why are all of his accounts frozen? Is he under a court order to pay restitution? In theory, if a bank will allow you to open an account for him as POA, and he can direct his 401(k)payments to be made to that account, The accounts will be frozen unless and until someone brings it to the attention of the court and obtains in order to that effect. The court will have to clarify how much of his income is exempt from the execution for restitution purposes
That shouldn't prevent opening a separate account for him. An attorney might be able to unfreeze some of the accounts in order to provide bail money and attorney fees for his defense.
Good luck. A good criminal lawyer should be consulted as soon as possible.
